Nigerian politician, Joe Igbokwe, made clarifications concerning a viral video of a burning building alleged to be his property. Igbokwe provided more clarity and details on the issue during his recent interview on TVC News.
The rise in attacks and criminal activities in the Southeastern part of the country has raised concerns among the leaders and residents of the affected region. Recently, unknown armed men reportedly attacked the building of Joe Igbokwe in Nnewi, Anambra State. Igbokwe is a Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and a government official in Lagos State.
Igbokwe is popularly known for being vocal in his support for the government and his political party.
Revealing details of how he discovered the attack on his property, Joe Igbokwe said, "I was not in Nnewi when the attack took place. I was in Lagos, and I am still in Lagos State. My neighbour in the area called to inform me of strange movements in my house. I investigated the information, but I discovered that the assailants had left. However, I saw the video footage of the attack, and they torched my house."
Speaking concerning the burning house in the viral video, Igbokwe said, "My house is not the one burning in this video. I learned that the house in this video belongs to a former Nigerian Minister for Economic Planning and budget. The house in the video was set on fire in another part of Nnewi. The attackers set fire to various buildings across the state."
